The Reel Cinemaniac: Heathers Remake

By Kern Valley Sun / January 23, 2018

The Reel Cinemaniac / Josh Simpkins To be honest, my love of film began at a very early age. I had an extensive collection of movies, on VHS mind you, at the age of 11. Of all the films in my 300-plus-tape treasure trove, there was one that I talked my sister into buying me […]

Healthy Living: Mental Maintenance

By Kern Valley Sun / January 23, 2018

Healthy Living / Christine Harness With all of the current attention the media and medical staff give to the growing prevalence of the dementias, it seems strange to me that so few elderly people and their relatives are actually seeking resources toward prevention and management of care that is helpful. It’s somewhat like chronic smokers […]

Reel Reviews: Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle

By Kern Valley Sun / January 23, 2018

Reel Reviews / Josh Simpkins Some films are so good that they don’t ever need a sequel, for instance, Gone with the Wind. Some films are made with sequels in mind. Some sequels come right away and probably never should’ve seen the light of day, while others take 20 years to reach the silver screen—and […]

Rest in paradise, Jerry Van Dyke

By Kern Valley Sun / January 17, 2018

By Josh Simpkins Special to the Sun Geez Louise, friends and neighbors, we were doing so well. It seemed that Death was tired and taking a short break. Not short enough, in my opinion. It saddens me deeply to report that comedian and actor Jerry Van Dyke, who after decades in show business finally emerged […]

Fishing with Noble: Fishing, the Best Therapy of All

By Kern Valley Sun / January 17, 2018

By Noble Smith It looks like I have been blindsided by a tough disease. I was diagnosed with multiple myeloma, a blood cancer. Did not see this one coming. Evidently, this disease picks and chooses from all walks of life. The first thing I need to do is thank the great people of the Kern […]

Writing Out Loud: Chicken Soup for the…

By Kern Valley Sun / January 17, 2018

By George Stahl Despite the uncommon weather we have been having for a January, it is still that time of year when colds are most likely to pop up in your life. If you have children, well, no one has to tell you about the round robin effect a cold will start once your child […]

Beyond the Valley: Nashville, Pt. III

By Kern Valley Sun / January 17, 2018

By Marsha Smith Fortunately, many of the historical sites are on the outskirts of Nashville, although all are considered Nashville treasures. One such treasure is the Belle Meade Plantation, Belle Meade meaning “beautiful meadow”. The plantation that once covered 5,300 acres was developed by John Harding in 1807. Today the plantation still maintains 24 acres: […]
